Clay, a small town antique store owner trying to leave his shame behind, rents the apartment above his store to a wandering girl. Elizabeth travels from town to town until her gas tank is empty, never staying long enough to make a real connection. As she gets to know her reticent landlord, a courtship develops. Clay goes slow and Elizabeth tries to push, and everyone wonders why he's so determined to be difficult. The real question is whether these two people can endure an old fashioned romance in a modern world. Along the way we learn about both their pasts and meet some of the people who have influenced them, for better or worse. We see some of the challenges of modern romance and dating.

Amber: Buy me flowers. Make me a card. I don't need you to make me your community service project. I need you to dance with me. That was okay, wasn't it?
Clay: Yes.
Amber: Clay, I know it's in you. I know it. Flatter me. Excite me. Sweep me off my feet. Tell me I'm the most attractive woman you've ever seen even if you don't really mean it. I don't care.
Clay: Lie to you?
Amber: Exactly. A normal date.
Clay: I've wasted a lot of words. I don't want to waste any more.
Amber: On me. Oh you're scoring all kinds of points.
Clay: It's not about scoring ...

A Solid Work of Art
9 December 2014 | by pasta-eaterSee all my reviews

I found this movie to be excellent. The cinematography was crisp, complete and didn't stumble in its presentation. The acting was solid and believable, not overdone. The use of the soundtrack with the selected scenes was perfect. The music didn't draw your attention away from the picture, it was complimentary to the actions involved and provided a soft pulse. The story was well written and it made you think about what is important in both life and relationships in ways I feel most people have long since forgotten. I think you would be doing yourself a disservice if you choose not to wrap your arms around this film, settle into its warmth and open your soul to the message it delivers.
